Every year, when my ballot appears in my mailbox, I feel a little pang of loss. It reminds me that I don’t get to vote in person any more, don’t get to go into the church basement, and chat with the election volunteers, don’t get to find out if the trick for finding my name in the voter list — the second one after all the Andersons — still works, don’t get to watch as the ballot box whooshes my marked ballot back and down into the “vault” in the bottom.

I announced then that I would be taking vacation the entire month of October this year, because I knew, with national races on the ballot, that things would only get worse this year.
The two candidates for 5th Legislative District Representative, Position 1, agreed on several points when they met at the Snoqualmie Valley Chamber of Commerce's second candidate forum last Wednesday. Both the incumbent Jay Rodne (R) and challenger Jason Ritchie (D) concurred, to varying degrees, that small businesses need state regulation reforms, that school districts need the local control that local levy authority gives them, that the state's Growth Management Act is outdated, and that a state income tax is not a good solution.
